Over the past year my feet have become really rough for some reason all of a sudden. I alternate between Vans, Mary janes, boots, and very occasionally heels, but my poor heels, big toe, and the balls of my feet feel just awful! I'm so glad that I bought this salve on a whim. The peppermint smell alone is nice and soothing and I've found that after a few nights of use my feet feel better and better. It definitely works better if you rub it in well and then wear nice soft socks to bed. Exfoliating first helps as well too. I'm sure I'll buy more when I run out. I love it!
